These seven photos comprise a series presented for my introduction to photography class final assignment. Each photo comes from three rolls of 35mm Kentmere 400 black and white film scanned in and printed digitally 16 inches tall on luster photo paper. My goal with this series was to present my world, being the area surrounding the river in the twin cities, in an eerie dreamlike almost surreal other worldly view. With this goal in mind I chose to specifically use black and white film because to me if feels rougher and more organic than digital. Once the negative was developed I chose then to scan, manipulate, and print them digitally, because of the control it gave me to remove scratches and dust, as well as the ease to print them larger. Each of these seven photos were chosen, one because they were in portrait orientation which creates a tunnel vision-like effect, cutting off the viewer’s peripherals, and two because they each present a view point and feeling that is not typically seen even if they are common landmarks of the Twin Cities area.
